"It is our main tool to keep our projects in order."
What do you like best about LiquidPlanner?

It's simple to use and straightforward, and it saves time when dropping and dragging or renaming and modifying tasks, projects, workspaces, and folders, among other things. It's tremendously useful to be able to view all of the tasks involved with a project in one spot, as well as the schedule for completing them. The mobile app is ideal for anybody who wishes to keep track of teams and projects.

What do you dislike about LiquidPlanner?

It costs a little more than some of the other rivals we've examined. We need to code our time into LiquidPlanner and a payroll clock for my organization, which feels like double responsibility. It would be fantastic if LiquidPlanner could interact with payroll programs to fix this issue. However, when it comes to expression, you typically get what you pay for, thus the value stays high. Liquid Planner is an excellent product.

What problems is LiquidPlanner solving and how is that benefiting you?

Keeping track of large-scale data and technological initiatives involving various teams. Some areas of my profession have become lot more efficient, such as running analytical reports and quickly budgeting and extracting hours for my project teams. The search tool makes it exceedingly simple to find jobs, projects, notes, or documents, even after decades of use. It is really simple to securely share documents and information, and with so many people working remotely these days, it is critical. LiquidPlanner really helps me keep on schedule and notifies me when I'm not on track to complete a job on time. The project timeline will be determined by the information you give to LiquidPlanner.

"Robust and intuitive tool for project planning, management and analytics"
What do you like best about LiquidPlanner?

Intuitive - most features are straight-forward and the ability to drag and drop or change and rename tasks, projects, folders and workspaces etc on the fly is a big time-saver. Customer support has always been very responsive and helpful and they listen to feedback from users. Although I don't use it nearly as much any more working remote, the mobile app is nice for those on the go who want to stay current on the projects and teams status. My team has also taken advantage of the occasional live webinars and online tutorials to get the most of Liquid Planner which we find to be very helpful.

What do you dislike about LiquidPlanner?

There isn't much to dislike in my opinion but it is a bit higher priced than some of the other competitors we have tried out. However as the saying goes, you often get what you pay for and Liquid Planner is a top notch product so the value is still there.

What problems is LiquidPlanner solving and how is that benefiting you?

Tracking large-scale data and technology projects across multiple teams within the organization. The ability to run various analytics reports and easily extract my teams hours and budgeting by projects/tasks has made certain aspects of my job much more efficient. The search functionality makes it very easy to locate tasks, projects, documents or notes even from years ago which can be a big help. Sharing files and information securely is very easy which has never been more necessary with most working remote these days.

"Reliable time tracking and PM tool with useful features, but more work needed to get to next level"
What do you like best about LiquidPlanner?

Flexible structure of tasks, projects and clients makes it easy to order and arrange your work as you need to. You can also easily include tasks on an email to keep track of outside conversations. Time logging is robust and offers flexible options. The vision of LiquidPlanner, as a tool that can predict when work is likely to be done based on the availability of resources and the priority of work is appealing and potentially quite powerful.

What do you dislike about LiquidPlanner?

The UI is unattractive and feels dated and sluggish to use. I've gotten used to it over the years and it's not a huge deal, but I feel that search-ability and ease of use for various actions could be improved. It's probably time for a UX overhaul. The reliability and accuracy of LiquidPlanner's forecasting is all based on the reliability of the data inputs. This is understandable and probably par for the course among most competing solutions, but the level of effort required to get all the necessary data into the system is high, and any gaps will impair the reliability of the forecasted dates. It would be nice to have an integration with Google Calendar so that any meetings would be picked up and would automatically adjust availability in real time and update the forecast. This would make things easier. Reporting is also somewhat limited although there is an API to do reporting outside the system if needed.

What problems is LiquidPlanner solving and how is that benefiting you?

Time tracking and project management in a professional services context. LiquidPlanner has been a foundation of our business for years and has been a reliable way to track time and manage tasks.

"Helpful and Time Consuming"
What do you like best about LiquidPlanner?

It is extremely helpful to see all the tasks associated with a project in one place and the timeline to achieve them.

What do you dislike about LiquidPlanner?

LiquidPlanner is helpful if you input every single task and track your time properly on each project. This can be time consuming and I often feel my organization needs a project manager just to input info into LP. We do have an external consultant that adjusts the dashboard, add projects, and trains people on how to use LP. Even with this consultant, I find LP cumbersome. For my organization, we need to code our time to LP and a payroll clock, which feels like double work. It would be awesome if LP integrated with payroll applications to solve that problem.

What problems is LiquidPlanner solving and how is that benefiting you?

LP most definitely helps keep me on track and let's me know if I'm not on track to finish a project on time. Based on the information you submit into LP, it will let you know the timeline for the project.

"Perfect for Managing Multiple Projects Simultaneously"
What do you like best about LiquidPlanner?

Being able to use priority packets, using dashboards to create client update portals

What do you dislike about LiquidPlanner?

The timesheet functionality is a bit clunky, the overall UI feels a little outdated and could use a refresh, the cost per seat is higher than others.

What problems is LiquidPlanner solving and how is that benefiting you?

As someone who has come from MS Project, using this is a game changer. Being able to prioritize tasks for my day across multiple projects is such a great victory with this. I am able to act with confidence and get from task to task with extreme focus.

"Liquid Planner has changed the way we manage our projects, and our resources."
What do you like best about LiquidPlanner?

Liquid Planner offers a way to plan your resources in a "liquid", always changing way. The alternative products out there only let you set hard dates, and are difficult to maintain and modify. This product fluctuates properly with our ever-changing priorities and needs.

What do you dislike about LiquidPlanner?

The pricing could be a little better, though in our case we feel like we are getting a return for our investment. I wish there was a better "Calendar view" to see who is where when, but they are continuously adding updates, so that may be an up-and-coming feature.

What problems is LiquidPlanner solving and how is that benefiting you?

Before LiquidPlanner, we were never sure how many resources we would have available for an upcoming project. We simply managed our projects on a day-to-day, or at best, weekly basis. With LiquidPlanner we can plan our projects months in advance, and have a great understanding of which projects are getting out when.

"Dialed in on so many fronts, lackluster on others"
What do you like best about LiquidPlanner?

The reporting. LP's reporting is head and shoulders above the rest. The reports are easy to make and provide a great tool for sifting through data. I also like the way the projects are presented. Too many of the competitors make it hard to get a good look at many projects at once. With the LP tree structure I am able to get a feel for where each project stands with just a quick glance. Other features I like are: Timesheet exports are great. Custom fields. Customize-able columns.

What do you dislike about LiquidPlanner?

The scheduling is way too cumbersome. We dont even use it. I understand the intent and think it's quite nice, but it just takes too much management to setup the schedule so it provides any value. We still use a Google doc for our scheduling. Multiple owners has proven problematic for us. It was better before. The biggest problem is that if one person logs time to a task it doesnt reduce the overall effort. In theory, it's fine because everyone would be updating remaining efforts but it just doesnt work in the real world. We need much more granular permissions. I'd like to be able to restrict people from setting activities, moving things, running specific reports, setting fields, etc. For our purposes, LP seems to only have two levels of permissions. We desperately need daily timesheet submission. The way it's setup right now we have no way of knowing if people logged their time day to day. It also makes end of the month reconciliation extremely difficult. The portals were not a success for us. We tried getting rid of Basecamp and using portals but it did not work out well. We really need the ability to have custom fields that arent just dropdowns. Doesnt make a lot of sense to not have that ability.

What problems is LiquidPlanner solving and how is that benefiting you?

The ability for everyone to see where each project stands at any given moment has been extremely valuable. Our company digs deep into our numbers and we wouldnt be able to do that with other systems.
